Only two more days until Valley Gives! Here are a few more great reasons to give to GTC:
- Address the root causes of hunger, chronic disease, and food insecurity. We believe the root causes of these problems involve economic and racial inequality. In addition to growing food, we engage in undoing racism training, provide opportunities for youth development, and think creatively about generating more steady income streams for ourselves with the food we grow and sell.
- Fund efforts that address the “big picture” while making concrete, tangible change. This year alone, five neighborhood and school groups started or planned gardens with our technical assistance.
- Encourage biking and sustainability in Springfield. We transport all of our organic produce to our GTC EATS! customers and the local farmers market by bike.
Keep an eye out for more reasons to support GTC as we get closer to Valley Gives day, 12/12/13!
